Peachy Keen Treats !!!

Hi Everyone !!
Its my day to post over at Peachy Keen Blog!!!
I wanted to share with you the treats I made for my daughters 2nd grade class
and for the cute tag PKSC-09 Septemeber 2012
The bat cut is from the Silhouette store, in order to accommodate the length of the candy, I had to make the bat longer.
Inside are 3 sticks of sixlets !!!

I used simple circle and scallop punches for the tag, and tied it around with Orange Licorice twine from Trendy Twine.

Since I took this picture I have finished them all. 40 in all.
I know they are just gonna tear them open.... oh well lol
Thanks so much !!!!

Peachy Keen Color Challenge

Hi Everyone !!!
Its a new weekly challenge over at Peachy Keen !!
This week is a color challenge, so I used all the colors from the photo,
I absolutely love the bright but jewel tones this was soooo me !!!
I used a free cut file from SVG Cutting files for the Butterfly, and a card base from My Scrap Chick.
Of course I used a new Peachy Keen face from PK-145 Piles of Smiles and the sentiment from PKSC-02 Feb 2012 Stamp of the Month
Also used Echo Park paper, a Jaded Blossom die and twine from the Twinery.
I'm sure your asking why would I make so many ???
 Well Its really hard to shop for my mom, so I have decided when I make a card to make several of them to put in a box for her as a gift. She loves to send cards to people and what a better gift then something handmade that she can send to others.

Please join us this week for a fun color challenge and to see the photo inspiration
